The long history of marine chronometers can be traced all the way back to the early 18th century. In 1714, the British government offered a longitudinal prize for a method of determining longitude at sea, and a man by the name of John Harrison from Yorkshire answered the call. In 1735, he completed a clock based on a pair of counter-oscillating weighted beams connected with springs whose motion was undeterred by the undulations of the ship. These complex machinations were absolutely remarkable for the time-period, and many of his findings paved the way for military watchmakers in the coming centuries.https://www.60clicks.com/stowa-marine-k ... 40-review/

That's a perfect watch to own if you stare at it in the box. On the wrist, it looks stupid.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

Ain't that bad, but there are so many other watches in that price range that I'd rather buy.

Has a very similar look to the Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer..
Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...

Nice classic look but not for me. The hands are to skinny.
